Introducing Sandnessjøen

Watching over Sandnessjøen, the main commercial centre of Nordland's southern coast, is the imposing Syv Søstre (Seven Sisters) range, just to its south. Hardy hikers can reach all seven summits (ranging from 910m to 1072m) in a day. Every several years there's a competition that takes in all the peaks, but don't bust a gut trying to crack the record of three hours, 54 minutes.

Central Sandnessjøen's backbone is pedestrianised Torolv Kveldulvsons gate, one block from the harbour.
